Chances are that you are tired of spending a long time in the waiting rooms, be with your doctor for only a couple of minutes , and be greeted by an office staff who doesn’t even know your name. In this case our office may be the perfect dental home for you.
From the moment you arrive you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how our team works together. You’ll be greeted by Pam who is our scheduling coordinator. Here are no closed windows (although, nowadays, because of COVID 19 we do have sneeze-guards) with a clip board asking you to sign your name. Making use of a new technology (two way radios) either Nivole or Diana will be informed that you are here, and they will take you to the treatment rooms. If you are here for a periodical hygiene appointment, Bonnie will be ready to start your visit in time.
Our patients choose us because who we are, and what we do, not because an HMO insurance had chosen a doctor for them out of restricted list. Our patients value top care, rather than being told when and where to go for their dental care.
We do work with traditional insurances, but we are not contracted providers for HMO insurances. This allows us to work only on one patient at a time, and avoid a busy waiting room, full of waiting people. We are mindful of your time and we are taking all the measures to see you promptly. If your appointment is at 10.40 am you’ll be seen at 10.40 am.
